Hello everyone:
I need to have two Pismo batts rebuilt, and I can't find the linky or thread with that in it. It was someplace in SoCal that offered the service. Any help would be appreciated.

The firm I'm thinking of would actually rebuild YOUR batteries if you sent them in.
He can be fixed -- you can't.

Here is a link to doing the task yourself. Its not that hard and would save you plenty of bucks...

Good luck

Yeah, I've seen that one and a couple of other places that talk about it. I'm not that good with a soldering gun anymore. Besides, for $50 it just isn't worth it.

There was someplace that had a regular service doing it for Pismo batts in particular. I've searched, but haven't found it here again.

Here's a link to how to do it: Replace Powerbook G3 Battery Cells

Here's a place to get the cells: Your Online Source For 18650 Lithium Ion Cells
